Families from all suburbs in Melbourne are invited - although our club is located in the North East so if you live in Rosebud, there may be a club closer to home. In the past, our club has had families from Montmorency, Lower Plenty, Research, Eltham, Briar Hill, Greensborough, Rosanna, McLeod, Viewbank, Epping, South Morang, and Mill Park participate. Oh yeah, and one from Sunshine and another from Broadford. Talk about commitment! LOL
